La Casa de Moneda de México (the Mexican Mint) was established in 1535 and is the oldest mint in the Americas. Apart from manufacturing all the circulation coinage for Mexico, the mint also strikes coins in the very large five troy ounces (5oz) of silver format. The best known of these is the Libertad series of bullion coins, but occasionally the mint issues commemorative silver coins too.
